You Mean the World to Me...Inkspirational Challenge #129, Cards in Envy~Red and Blue Card Challenge

Hello,

Welcome to a new Inkspirational challenge, but before I share the details:  a huge *thank you* to those who created cards for the sweethearts photo inspiration.  Beauty overload!

For the next two weeks, we're inviting you to join Inkspirational Challenge #129~Connect. Think about the possibilities: connecting with a friend,  connecting dots, connecting with technology, making a connection (oh...light bulb - figuratively and literally -  just popped into mind...an electrical connection. Why didn't I think of that earlier!)... Oodles of directions to explore with this powerful word.


For you, two cards: same style, different colours...one each for my niece and nephew...who I'd so love to connect with more often!  Concord & 9th Map Love (which I don't see in their shop anymore! Glad I connected with this set before it disappeared)...and yes, I most definitely do love it!



NOTE: Honoured and thrilled to selected as an In the Mailbox Favourite by Donna, Toni and Lisa, from Cards In Envy~Red & Blue Challenge.  THANK YOU!

Please drop in to see my amazing team-mates' takes for this word prompt


and then...well, you know the rest!

Bring along a card/project and connect with us in the gallery!  

See you there!

Exciting plans on your weekend roster?  I'm off to run a few errands then, hopefully, settling in for some serious stuff: crafting!

Great stamp! I've only recently discovered this company, I don't have any of their stamps yet but I think they are very fun! Fab job with such CAS and fun cards!

I see we both went the same way with this and I like how you used the different colours. I love the neutral one best-sounds like the perfect weekend x

Great cards Carol, I didnt think I needed this stamp set. How lucky I have you to show me that I do. Bet your niece and nephew will love their cards.

A crisp and CAS duo, Carol ... a sweet pop of red wrapped around those little hearts, so delicious with that fabulous sentiment! The littles will love them! Hugs, Anita :)

Super-clever map and sentiment. Very nice cards!

Love these two cards Carole.....and I so needed this stamp to make a Bon Voyage card for my youngest son and family as they emigrated to Oz last month. Anyway your cards just say it all and are CAS perfect! Hugs xx

Okay...So I stopped by here earlier, but didn't comment because you showed the newest challenge at Inkspirational Challenge, and had to play along! Your little ones are going to love these sweet little cards, Auntie C!! His and hers. Perfect! I need to pull this set out more often, so thanks for the reminder girlfriend. Have a great Sunday. Bev

Love this pair of cards. Such a fun way to show your place in the world. Apologies galore for my lack of visiting. I haven't been anywhere in blogland lately--too busy protesting all the terrible things happing in the US these days. About to take a stroll through all of your lovely posts that I have missed. Won't stop to chat along the way, however, just take it all in. Mr. Sherlock is impatient for his afternoon walk. Hugs.

Fabulous idea and perfectly executed! I like the first one better, but that is just me.

Shauna said...

How cool! That world stamp is so unique. What a fun way to customize cards! Also, perfect for "connecting" with people. =)

Super fun use of the map

Susanne Vargas said...

I liked your cards so much that I felt I absolutely "needed" this stamp set. Usually I would have just put it on my ever growing wish list but when you mentioned that you couldn't find it anymore I frantically searched, found one site that carried it, and just ordered it! Phew!

Brenda said...

I was eyeing up this set a while back and you just broke my heart by saying you didn't see it anymore. Pooh! lol Your cards are perfect for the kiddo's! A great way to show your love for them. Love, love, love! Hugs, Brenda

Kim Heggins said...
